THE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN – IN THE DOCK OF HEAVEN

by Ivy Scarborough | May 18th, 2012

BOBBIE, THE MANIFESTATIONS OF DECAY AND DECLINE CAN – AND WILL – GET MUCH WORSE THAN THIS!!

 I MAKE THE POINT IN INTO THE NIGHT THAT WE FACE COMING EVENTS WHICH WILL PUSH “THE MISERY FACTOR OFF THE CHARTS”.

 YET MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS IN AMERICA ARE STILL CONDUCTING THEIR LIVES UNCHANGED.

THEIR IDEA OF DOING SOMETHING IS NOTHING MORE THAN A FORM OF GLORIFIED WHINING. 

I REFER TO MY FELLOW AMERICAN CHRISTIANS AS THE “TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET CROWD”. 

THEY TALK, TALK, TALK, PREACH, PREACH, PREACH, CONDUCT THEIR BIBLE STUDIES, CLUSTER IN THEIR LITTLE GROUPS, BUT TAKE NOT ONE STEP IN THE DIRECTION OF RADICAL SOUL SEARCHING, EXTREME SELF-SACRIFICE OR WILLINGNESS TO EMBRACE SUFFERING, REAL SUFFERING.

NOWHERE CAN BE HEARD A BOLD VOICE DECLARING LOUDLY IN THE MARKETPLACE, “HERE AM I LORD; SEND ME!”

THERE IS A WORD FOR PEOPLE LIKE THIS – EFFETE.

GO INTO BATTLE WITH TROOPS LIKE THESE AND YOU WILL BE SLAUGHTERED.  THE CAUSE – NO MATTER HOW JUST, HOW NOBLE, HOW RIGHTEOUS – WILL BE LOST.

AND THIS ONE IS BEING LOST!

SOME WILL CRITICIZE ME – AND HAVE CRITICIZED ME – FOR “BEATING UP ON THE SHEEP” AND FOR “CATEGORICAL STATEMENTS”, BUT I BELIEVE THE EVIDENCE IS OVERWHELMING IN SUPPORT OF THIS INDICTMENT.

UNTIL AMERICAN CHRISTIANS ARE DRIVEN TO THEIR KNEES WITH THE REALIZATION OF THEIR COMPLICITY IN THE EVENTS OF OUR AGE, THERE IS NO HOPE.

BUT THE THING ALL SHOULD FEAR ARE THE WORDS OF CHRIST WHEN THEY PROTEST HOW THEY HAD PREACHED, TAUGHT, HEALED, ETC. IN HIS NAME.

 NONE OF US EVER ESCAPES THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR SINS.

 THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE DEPRAVITY AND THE FAITHLESSNESS OF THE CHINESE, ARABS, LIBERALS, ATHEISTS, ETC. 

MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IT IS ABOUT THE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN.

WE, I BELIEVE, ARE THE FOCUS OF GOD’S ATTENTION.

BUT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR SINS ONLY IN ABSTRACTIONS AND SHALLOW DEGREES.

WE STRAIN AT THE GNATS – THINKING WE ARE SERVING GOD AND DOING THE NOBLE THING – WHILE WE AND THE REST OF OUR WORLD ARE ON THE VERGE OF CHOKING TO DEATH ON THE CAMEL.
